The General Conference Committee (GCC) of US SHIP is an Advisory Committee for the governance of the US SHIP pilot program. US SHIP investigators grandfathered in 7 individuals to serve on the GCC during the pilot phase; however, it is thought that these positions will be elected by the House of Delegates once a formal USDA program.

  • Bret Marsh, state veterinarian
  • Dustin Oedekoven, NPB
  • Lisa Rochette, USDA APHIS
  • James Roth, Iowa State University, Program Investigator
  • Tom Wetzell, veterinarian
